mere hour's drive from Johannesburg, the Cradle of Humankind is a place of major significance. It was here we first became human. Here where we first stood upright on our own two, rather oddly shaped, feet, explored the uses to which we could put our usefully opposed thumbs, and experimented with more and more sophisticated grunts as we tried to make sense of our environment. Its also the place where 1.8 million years ago we first "domesticated" fire.
You can do a tour of the Sterkfontein Caves, where there is a small interpretive museum, but you'll get more out of a visit here if you take a dedicated tour with a knowledgeable guide who can tell you about the various discoveries.

OK - to be perfectly honest, it's unlikely that these hominids lived only in the Sterkfontein area - they probably ranged all over southern Africa but, in order for fossils to be preserved, they need to die under ideal conditions - ideal conditions for fossil formation, not ideal conditions for life, obviously.
